Kansas City airport breaks ground on new terminal to open in 2023


The Kansas City Aviation Department has been joined by the city's major airline partners, infrastructure developer Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate, Clark|Weitz|Clarkson (CWC), labour and business trade group representatives at a ground-breaking ceremony for the new US$1.5 billion Terminal A, according to Shipping Gazette.
"On behalf of the entire airline community, we are excited to be part of this journey and celebrate such an incredible milestone for the city," said Southwest Airlines regional head of airport affairs Kyle O'Neal.
"The new terminal will support more efficient airline operations and allow airport users to enjoy the convenience of modern air travel in a facility with updated technology and amenities, close parking, spacious gate areas, and ample food and beverage options."
At just over one million square feet, the terminal is the largest single infrastructure project in the city's history. The facility will open with 39 gates and the ability to expand up to 50 gates in future. The project will also include a parking structure for 6,300 spaces, which will be constructed adjacent to the terminal building, a central utility plant, and landside and airside improvements.
The new terminal will be built in the footprint of the airport's existing Terminal A, which has been decommissioned. Interior demolition operations will begin this spring; structural demolition is expected to begin to mid to late-April. The new terminal is expected to open in early 2023.
The New Terminal project is expected to generate up to 5,000 construction-related jobs. Edgemoor has pledged to maximise opportunities for local minority and women-owned firms, setting ambitious participation goals for 20 per cent minority-owned and 15 per cent women-owned businesses for professional and construction services, respectively.
